A bit of Jersey History, in the early 18th Century a Jersey Captain, Phillipe Janvrins, master of the Esther traded between Franve and Jersey, but in 1721 the plague was rife in France and no one was allowed to land until a long quarantine period, so the Esther anchored in Belcroute bay, just around the corner from Portlet, sadly Phillipe died, but was not allowed ashore for burial, but his Wife pleaded at the royal court, and was allowed to bury Phillipe on this little islet in Portlet, a wild and isolated place in 1721, the service had to be conducted from the cliffs above, and his body rowed from the Esther by 2 crew members and buried by them, later his wife had a plaque placed on his grave, and had built this tower over his grave with the Yellow flag flying for the remainder of her life she visited his grave every week and laid flowers

I like the drama that the sky brings.

Thanks Mitch, I am luckier than most in that living on a small Island I am never more than 15 minutes from a good location so when we get great skys I can just pick a camera and head off,
Richard

It is one thing to be priviliged with great cloudy skies on an island, but you are a master to frame then so well.
Thanks for the story!
Frank
